Fireworks

Tags: poem, song
A letter to a Lost Love.
Fireworks.

You were fairy lights and scars,
Rocket ships and caviar,
Thunderstorms and late-night bars,
A car that we were both too drunk to drive...

The softest touch, the fastest road,
All senses set to 'overload',
You broke my heart just like a code,
But oh, we were alive...

 The fireworks,
 No longer fireworks but fizzled out,
 In a flame that just turned about,
 And brought me to my knees.

 Please, please forgive me,
 For I know well what I've done,
 But I didn't plan to hurt you,
 Or anyone.
 
 You were bright as moonlit nights,
 Though dark as Summer's sky,
 A light so bright I had to close my eyes.
 We dropped our masks, embraced the dark and danced upon the skies,

 But all too soon and much to our surprise...

 The fireworks,
 No longer fireworks, had fizzled out,
 Love turned whisper that once did shout,
 No fire burns in your eyes.

 But warmed I was by you my love,
 And as I watch dark heavens above
 I pray...
 To see more fireworks... upon another day.
